About the tour

With the excuse of highlighting a few ‘must see’ museums for when you next visit Florence (the list is by no means exhaustive and yes, they happen to be on either side of a straight line). This tour takes us on another walk of discovery to view some lesser known but no less important examples of architecture from the Middle Ages, the Renaissance and even some Florentine Baroque.

Meet your local guide


The son of English and Italian parents, Bruce was educated in French schools and at the Italian University of Florence. His passion is history in general and Florentine history in particular. After spending several years working in international organizations on three different continents, then in the world of art auctions and artbook publishing, he returned to Florence where he thoroughly enjoys his profession as a tour guide, sharing his insights about the city’s fascinating history and heritage. Since 2004 he is a member of the International Council of Museums.

Bruce has been guiding since Mar 2017
